The hostel provides free WiFi and meals. Also, there is a security guard throughout the day. The annual fees for the hostel is about one lakh rupees.
CMR University was established in the year 2013. Hence, this is only the second batch of students and so it doesn't have any alumni network. The seniors were quite friendly and helpful.
Most of the faculty of the college are quite helpful and friendly. They always motivate us to do our best. The faculty are highly qualified in their respective areas and they have a vast experience. They also use many innovative methods of teaching like case studies, presentations etc.
